Grettel the Sailoress
I've added three new items to my shop from my summer collection called Grettel the Sailoress.  


"Grettel the Sailoress" is a woman of confidence. She loves pieces that flow in the wind. She is pleased when her clothing is comfortable and chic. She cherishes the open seas and drinking champagne with her husband in the summer afternoons. 



These three pieces are available in my shop right now.   Click images below to see items in my shop. 
Thank you for reading lovelies.

"Grettel the Sailoress" a summer collection
I am proud to introduce my  Summer Collection named after a lady, Grettel. 

"Grettel the Sailoress" is a woman of confidence. She loves pieces that flow in the wind. . She is pleased when her clothing is comfortable and chic. She cherishes the open seas and drinking champagne with her husband in the summer afternoons.

 These three pieces are available in my shop right now.   Click images below to see items in my shop. 



I have loved working on my mini collections.  If you haven't seen my others they are called "Lucille." and "Barbara"!  It has been a blast collecting these items, styling them, and presenting them as a collection. 

A few new items will be put in the shop each week.

SOFA-Fashion Show
I hinted at this wonderful event a few weeks ago but now it is in full swing.  In just over a week I will be joining Julia and my dear husband's Jazz band in a SOFA "Sound & Fashion" Night at action house here in Heidelberg.

 There will be live Jazz, classic cocktails, a fashion show, and stands selling the presenters goods. The fashion show will include my original vintage, Julia's hand sewn from vintage designs, and Julia's new Jewelry line.  There will be both male and female models.  It should be a wonderful time!

If you live in Heidelberg, make sure to mark your calenders for Vintage SOFA on Saturday May 12th!!!

Early Spring Collection: Barbara
I am excited to share my early spring collection of one of a kind vintage pieces.  It is called "Barbara." 

Barbara is a silly lady. She is a lover of fun.  Barbara dresses for herself and no one else.  She likes to move and dance in her clothing.  Most of her outfits and thoughts encompass the anticipation and delight in spring.  She waits and waits for it all year round, until she sees the buds bloom and the baby grass grow. 





I loved working on my first mini collection called "Lucille." and "Barbara" has been even funner!  It has been a blast collecting these items, styling them, and presenting them as a collection. 

A few new items will be put in the shop each week.

Q & A: Cameras
I have recently got some questions asking about what type of camera I use.  So, I thought I would go all out and name every one of my lovely cameras in my collection. 
 The main camera I use is my Nikon D5000.  I love it. 
 It is a wonderful camera, and I have used it so much I can't really imagine life without it.

Many of my cameras just sit on my shelf and make the flat prettier.  Some of my most favorites are collecting dust because I have not made film photography a priority in the past year and a half.

Maybe one day I will have the money and inspiration to practice film photography once more.  But for now they just have to be looked at and enjoyed aesthetically. Or used as accessories for my shop.




And now on to a few of my other favorites...

 holga.  (She works though she leaks light).

 My Polaroid Land Camera.

 My Olympus 35mm.

 My Polaroid 600.

 My Rollop. Medium Format camera.  (What a beauty!)
 
 My Box Brownie.



And I cannot forget my Lomo Super Sampler, and my 1950s Agfa Silette Pronto 35mm


My brother recently sent me this quote.  Which I thought was funny. 


"A photographer went to a socialite party in New York. As he entered the front door, the host said 'I love your pictures- they're wonderful; you must have a fantastic camera.' He said nothing until dinner was finished, then: 'That was a wonderful dinner; you must have a terrific stove." -Sam Haskins.

Oh Snap!  It's kind of cruel but true.  The camera helps but it is not what makes a good photo!

Remember that, especially when you can't afford a fancy dancey one!  Point and shoots can make wonderful images. Don't let the sparkling lenses and special photographer poses fool you.  You can make great compositions even with your camera phone if you develop your eye.

Thanks for reading lovelies,

What do you collect?
